It’s all in the fingers!
If you’re looking for more finger exercises to hone your technique, Ashkan Mashhour’s new book, Guitar Fingers (£21.65, $28.76), would be a good place to start. Guitar Fingers lays out the foundations for left and right hand techniques, and closely looks at the mechanics of each technique under a microscope, pinpointing specific areas to work on. The book includes more than 250 pictures and diagrams, plus 200 short exercises designed to isolate each technique with the goal of gradually developing and bettering the motor skills it calls for. It’s the technique bible for the modern guitarist!
